Presciptives Winter Reflections All-Over Highlighter Review

If you don’t want to fork out $51 for Guerlain’s Meteorites Powder, check out Presciptives’ Winter Reflections All-Over Highlighter ($35) from its Aglow Holiday 2008 collection.

The All-Over Highlighter comes in a container about the size of my palm and contains different-sized powder pearls in medium pink, golden peach and white. Not only are the little balls pretty to look at but they contain uber fine shimmer to create an all-over glow that is so pretty without looking over the top.

I love using the pink ones on the cheeks as a blush and the white and golden peach ones down my nose as a highlighter. Alternatively, I swirl my brush over all of them and apply all over for a subtle, glowy look.

Unlike the Meteorites, these powder pearls are highly pigmented so remember to tap off excess and apply sparingly.

Holiday 2008 Hair Looks

Dusty Simington said it once and Nexxus Creative Director/celebrity hair stylist Kevin Mancusois saying it again – this season’s hottest trend is to work with what you have got. Don’t fight your natural texture… embrace it! With that in mind, Kevin created the following four modern looks that I want to share with you guys. I personally have long, straight hair and Sleek Look #1 is my favorite.

Sleek I-Divine Palette in Original Review

One thing I missed about living in London is definitely scouting through Boots and Superdrug for awesome drugstore finds. And during my recent trip back there in the fall, I picked up the Sleek I-Divine palette in Original (£5.49) that has quickly become one of my staples.


FOTD: Christmas Party Glittery Makeup Look

With Christmas nearing and a schedule crammed with parties and celebration, I am sure most of you are probably wondering what makeup to wear with your party outfits. If you ask me, glitter is definitely the way to go because glitter = instant glamor! You can wear it on the eyes, on the cheeks and even on the lips. The key is to focus on one feature and play it up. Glitter all over is simply an overkill.
